Let's wait to see what Bill H. and others think, but I think it might be late 19th/early 20th Century Guangxu Period. It has an old staple repair. Staple repairs were popular is Europe in the 18th/19th centuries. I don't know when they went out of use in China, but probably by the 1920s.

Thank you so far, Its really appreciated. It was sold 1931 as a Ming vase, but i don't really think this attribution is correct. I am far from being an expert. Here is another pic.

Looks to me from the glaze crackling, even painting technique and stapling to be late Qing or early Republic era. Minyao despite five claws on the dragon. After 1850, enforcement of controls over the use of imperial emblems weakened and virtually disappeared by the end of the Qing Dynasty. But without an imperial reign mark, any question of this being imperial ware is moot.
